It’s the weekend! Woot! And since we’re celebrating a happy thing, here’s another happy thing to bring with you: the latest and hottest in the world of beauty. Or, you know, some stuff that may tickle your fancy.
Colourpop x Karrueche
The first collaboration between Colourpop Cosmetics and Karrueche Tran was nice, but it felt like any other pink-themed collection to me. This one, however, aptly called Brown Sugar, really caught my eye. Perhaps it’s because I’ve been on a ’90s phase style- and makeup-wise lately, but all the products in the collection look like rich, creamy chocolate to me.
Will K-Beauty go dark?
We’re all familiar with how notorious K-Beauty is for scant shade selection. Which is exactly the reason why Thatiana Diaz of Refinery29 questioned K-Beauty’s lack of diversity at a time when inclusivity’s being pushed forward (as catalysed by Fenty Beauty’s release).
Hourglass’ Ambient Lighting Edit Volume 4
It is a thing of beauty and it’s coming soon. That’s all I can say about it. Also, it’s really pretty. Like, really pretty.
Candace Swanepoel’s weird contouring trick
It’s my first time to see it being done and I don’t know if it worked because Candace is already so gorgeous, there’s just no room for error or it’s another area of color theory I haven’t delved into. I’m talking about the trick where she used a mauve eyeshadow as a base for her cheek contour. Have you tried it before? Does it work on people who are not Candace Swanepoel?
